Angry Mounting Novak GTB To B4

Well i found out the hard way that you cant stick the GTB to the left of the battery like smaller brushed speed controls. So what is the best way to get it to stick to the shock tower ?

I have my GTB mounted in my B4 just fine. What motor are you using? I use a 7.5 and a 13.5 and do not run the fan, no heat issues at all. If a fan is needed novak sells a 25mm small black fan that you would mount in front of the esc.

if you really wanted to you could get the 25mm fans, or use a smaller spacer in between the speedo fins, and fan...

If geared correctly, 2WD buggy is very easy on electronics when compared to 4WD or truck. I have a B4 geared with a 84T spur and 19T pinion with my 6.5 Novak GTB setup. I don't run the fan and I've never thermaled or really gotten the esc or motor too hot.

also the J concepts bodies works better to run the fan. the motor size doesn't matter to where the esc goes. otherwise you can cut the stock body if you want to allow for the fan, not recommending that though. the smaller fans or less spacing would be better.

You don't need to mount it to the shock tower, just mount it in the chassis. I use MIP servo tape works very well.

Charlie Perez on rc10b4.com has pics of his GTB mounted in a B4 with a fan.

I use shoo goo on my esc to have even more clearance.

If you need a fan in a B4 with brushless, then you are running too much motor or you are not geared corectly!
